How Can I As a Teacher
Best Cooperate To
By Geraldine Rogers
Knoxville College, Knoxville,
“The mortality from tubercu
losis among the colored popula.
tion of the United States is near
ly twice that of the vd,;te» popu
lation.” This statement comes
from an essay, “Tuberculosis As
a Disease of the Masses and How
to Combat It,’’ written over thir
ty years ago. Although in recent
years the “White Plague” has
been bending its head in semi-de
feat, and the mortality from tu
berculosis h a s decreased signifi
cantly in both races, that among
Negroes is still much higher than
that of the white. According to
Dr. J .B. Naive, superintendent
and medical director of Beverly
Hills Sanatorium, Negroes are
more susceptible to tuberculosis
than white people, and Negro
servants often work with “a
highly developed tuberculosis in
fection.” “Knox county shows
150 Negro deaths against 59 out
of every hundred thousand i n
the white population.” All of
these, of course, are not due to
tuberculosis, but tuberculosis
takes its share. How can we as
young Negro Americans, with a
love for our race or a love for
humanity, help our people? How
can we cooperate in the fight
against this dreadful disease
which has so many victims each
year? How can I as a young
Negro teacher, best cooperate to
reduce tuberculosis among my
people? The aim of this paper is
to enumerate some of the things
that a teacher can do to cooper
ate in the reduction of tubercu
losis among Negroes .
hollowing the old adage,
“Charity begins at home,’’ the
teacher should first begin wi(h
himself. One should (should in
the sense of ought) make sure
that he, himself, did not have tu
berculosis. With God’s help, and
by closely observing the rules of
health, he should keep himself
in as perfect a state of health as
possible, and build up his resis
tance against disease. The teach
er should enjoy outdoor sports
and love nature, and allow his
pupils to see this (his love for
outdoor sports and nature) seek
ing by his enthusiasm for out-of
door life to create enthusiasm and
love for it on the part of the
pupils. He should be cheerful
and enthusiastic, full of the joy
of living—a true example of the
doctrine of health which h e
should attempt to teach.
A working knowledge of tu
berculosis should be secured—a
knowledge of its symptoms,
cause, prevention, and cure. One
should be able to recognize the
symptoms of this disease, should
know something of the condi
tions which cause it and should
know what can be done to pre
\ ent it ,and what can be done
and is being done for its cure .
The next steps, it seems should
